Masterful romance/fantasy
9 August 2017 | by fabiank-1See all my reviews

Boku wa asu, kinou no kimi to dêto suru is a classical Japanese melodrama. And i don't say that in a bad way.

Much like the classic "Love Letter, directed by the brilliant Hirokazu Kore Edo, this movie wraps nostalgia, romance and drama by pulling the right strings of your heart.

It is a deliberate choice by the director to rise the music and focus on the actor faces, he wants you to cry and you probably will.

That's because Boku wa asu, kinou no kimi to dêto suru succeeds in spectacular fashion in building an adorable relationship between the main characters in the first act.

Even if a bit confusing - and requiring a huge suspension of disbelief - this film is a winner. If you like melodramas, movies that you know have the objective to touch you and make you cry, you can't go wrong with this one.

Absolutely beautiful romance/fantasy flick.
